Gravity Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Buyer’s Guide

gravity_feature

Gravity is one of the most interesting movies of 2013. It is not interesting because of the money it made, which it made a lot of it but because of what the movie represents. Gravity is a successful science fiction movie with a female lead. Sandra Bulluck’s character, Dr. Ryan Stone, was not objectified nor did Stone need a man to rescue her. Well, actually, some people may argue that the short shorts are not NASA standard issue and that she needed help from a man from within a moment of psychosis. As a fan of science fiction, Gravity stood out to me. There are other science fiction films with female leads, but it has been a while. One of the first films that comes to mind is Contact with Jodie Foster playing the lead role. I am sure that social science graduate students across the country are breaking down the social implications of Gravity, but now we will get down to business: The Gravity Buyer’s Guide.

The-Hunger-Games-Catching-feature

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is the rare sequel in a trilogy, well a quadrilogy in this case, that builds on the momentum of its predecessor. Fans of the book, Jennifer Lawrence and of the first movie all came out to the theater to support this film helping it to bring in about thirty percent more than the first film. Moviegoers appreciated the quality additions to the cast, such as Jeffrey Wright, Sam Claflin and Jena Malone. Unfortunately, the producers will need to find a replacement for the late Philip Seymour Hoffman. Whoever they find will have big shoes to fill. Update: Philip Seymour Hoffman had finished filming for Mockingjay Part 1, but had not finished filming Part 2. However, the production team is confident that they will find a workaround. So, he will not be replaced.
